Amigas Mariposas :: June 6, 2016

This week has been a memorable one, marked by a lot of girl power and adventures. We are loving rainy season, always exploring in the water. I tried pure milk straight from a cow for the first time this week. I still love my area and my companion and the work of the Lord.

Hermana Meza and I have had a lot of memorable experiences with young girls and women together, learning how to be strong and virtuous and helping us all grow together in the daughters of God we were made to be. It seems that we keep running into women and teaching women and girls. We were excited to reflect on this and have claimed this upcoming week a week of awareness, women and divinity. We feel such a strong need to together help other women know that they are amazing and worthy of great things. We made shirts to celebrate this week. We wrote one side in english (because my companion is learning English) and the other in Spanish. We are so excited. I am divine! You are divine! We are divine!

We have also loved spending time with a lot of kids this week. Kids teach us a lot about life and how we can be more humble and genuine and real. I love our little kids in Dalmacia!

More updates next week!

Love you all!
Hermana Jessop

"Mangos Prepared" They sell these at a lot of little stores. They cut up the mango and then put all kinds of spicy sauces and spices. It is sweet and spicy and really yummy.

Last week, we met some guys from the US Army when we were eating lunch and they invited us to come see the base. We all went today to see it for P Day. I cannot explain how powerful the experience was to be among people who have fought and risked their lives for our country. They are here to build schools and clinics right now, but many of the men and women who are here have been fighting in Iraq in combat. I have much pride in our country and I am proud to be an American. I thought about how the sacrifices we are making as missionaries are very small, being here and serving God. I cannot imagine serving God and our country and fighting in a war. SO much respect for these men and women.
